Every Wine needs proper bunches selected to the right maturation.
For Semèle we select manually the 18% of grapes coming from our vineyards.
Sagrantino grapes are dried on rush mats on a place where we recreate temperature, humidity and ventilation of the best six vintages of the last forty years.
Fermentation is made on the skin under controlled temperature, the ageing is very long made in oak barrels and then it ages in bottles of 0,375 liters.
The colour is an intense ruby red, impenetrable, this wine has a remarkable concentration.
The aroma is rich: bramble jelly, figs and dried apricot, candied orange peel, balsamic and charred notes, vanilla, cinnamon, bitter chocolate, coffee.
The contrast between sweetness and tannin content fully represents the ancient tradition of Montefalco vinification. The wine is well-balanced, lingering, full-bodied.
Very leisurely, well-orchestrated and not cloying.
Traditionally matched with lamb. It is perfect with aged cheese, dark bitter chocolate, tart made with our marmalade of Sagrantino grapes.
